"In fiscal 2013, we made two acquisitions, enhanced our product portfolio and
achieved important strategic initiatives with Apple and Samsung. This
demonstrates that we continue to successfully transition from a legacy PC
services business to a uniquely positioned PC, tablet and smartphone security
and management services company," said John Livingston, CEO of Absolute.
"Reflecting this transition, our Q4 financial results show that we ended the
year with strong momentum throughout the business. We delivered growth in each
of our commercial markets, in both our theft management and device management
and data security product groups, and in international markets. In fiscal
2014, our focus is to maintain this momentum and to execute on our sales plan
to drive further growth."

F2013 Year-End and Q4 Financial Review
F2013 Sales Contracts remained relatively flat at $88.3 million compared to
$88.7 million in F2012. For Q4-2013, Sales Contracts were $26.2 million, up
10% from $23.8 million in Q4-F2012.

Commercial Sales Contracts for Absolute's flagship theft management products
were $52.8 million for F2013. This was down 8% from $57.3 million in F2012.
For Q4-F2013, commercial Sales Contracts for theft management products were
$16.8 million, up 8% from $15.6 million in Q4-F2012.

F2013 commercial Sales Contracts from Absolute's device management and data
security products were $29.6 million. This was up 23% compared to $24.1
million for F2012. For Q4-F2013, commercial Sales Contracts from Absolute's
device management and data security products were $8.2 million, up 15% from
$7.1 million in Q4-F2012.

International Sales Contracts remained relatively flat at $10.9 million in
F2013 compared to $10.6 million in F2012. Driven by strong demand in the
education vertical, international Sales Contracts were $2.8 million for
Q4-F2013, up 46% from $1.9 million in Q4-F2012.

For F2013, Sales Contracts for consumer solutions were $5.9 million, or 7% of
Sales Contracts, compared to $7.2 million, or 8% of Sales Contracts in F2012.
For Q4-F2013, Sales Contracts for consumer solutions were $1.2 million, or 4%
of Sales Contracts, compared to $1.1 million, or 5% of Sales Contracts in
Q4-F2013.

Revenue for F2013 was $83.2 million, a 12% increase from $74.6 million in
F2012. For Q4-F2013, revenue was $22.0 million, up 13% from $19.5 million in
Q4-F2012. Indicative of the Company's Software-as-a-Service Model ("SaaS")
business model, revenue primarily represents the amortization of deferred
revenue balances from recurring term license sales. For F2013, 76% of revenue
was related to the drawdown of deferred revenue balances accumulated to the
end of the prior fiscal year.

Adjusted Operating Expenses for F2013 were $71.4 million, up 14% from $62.9
million in F2012. The year-over-year change was primarily due to increased
investment levels in sales and marketing and research and development that
were initiated toward the end of F2012 to support the Company's long term
growth initiatives. Adjusted Operating Expenses for Q4-F2013 were $18.8
million, up 7% from $17.5 million in Q4-F2012.

Absolute generated Adjusted EBITDA of $11.7 million in F2013, which was flat
compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $11.7 million in F2012. For Q4-F2013, Adjusted
EBITDA was $3.2 million, up 58% from $2.0 million in Q4-F2012, reflecting a
greater increase in revenue relative to expenses.

Absolute recorded net income of $1.7 million, or $0.04 per share, in F2013,
compared to a net loss of $1.4 million, or $(0.03) per share, in F2012.
Absolute generated net income of $0.4 million, or $0.01 per share, in
Q4-F2013, compared to a net loss of $2.4 million, or $(0.05) per share, in
Q4-F2012.

Cash from operating activities was $17.5 million for F2013, down 7% from $18.9
million in F2012. Cash from operating activities for Q4-F2013 decreased 33% to
$3.2 million from $4.7 million in Q4-F2012.

In F2013, Absolute initiated a dividend policy of CAD$0.05 per share paid
quarterly. During F2013, Absolute paid total dividends of $4.1 million
compared to nil in F2012.

At June 30, 2013, Absolute had cash, cash equivalents and investments of $62.9
million compared to $69.9 million at June 30, 2012.

F2014 Outlook
We remain confident in the market opportunity for our solutions and intend to
make continued investments, particularly in the key areas of sales and
marketing and research and development, in order to fully capitalize on this
opportunity. For F2014, we expect Sales Contracts to increase over F2013
levels and for cash generated from operating activities to grow modestly from
F2013 levels.

Non-IFRS Measures and Definitions
Throughout this press release, we refer to a number of measures which we
believe are meaningful in the assessment of the Company's performance. All
these metrics are non-standard measures under International Financial
Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), and are unlikely to be comparable to similarly
titled measures reported by other companies. Readers are cautioned that the
disclosure of these items is meant to add to, and not replace, the discussion
of financial results or cash flows from operations as determined in accordance
with IFRS. For a discussion of the purpose of these non-IFRS measures, please
refer to the Company's Fiscal 2013 Q4 MD&A on SEDAR at www.SEDAR.com.

These measures, as well as their method of calculation or reconciliation to
IFRS measures, are as follows:

1) Sales Contracts

See the "Subscription Business Model" section of the MD&A for a detailed
discussion of why we believe Sales Contracts (also known as "bookings")
provide a meaningful performance metric. Sales Contracts are included in
deferred revenue (see Note 11 of the Notes to the Consolidated Financial
Statements), and result from invoiced sales of our products and services.

2) Basic and diluted Cash from Operating Activities per share

As a result of the nature of our revenues (please refer to "Subscription
Business Model" in the MD&A), we use Cash from Operating Activities as a
measure of profitability. Accordingly, we believe that Cash from Operating
Activities per share is a meaningful indicator of profitability per share.
Cash from Operating Activities per share is calculated by dividing Cash from
Operating Activities by the average number of shares outstanding for the
period (basic), or using the treasury stock method (diluted).

3) Adjusted Operating Expenses

A number of significant non-cash expenses are reported in our Cost of Revenue
and Operating Expenses. Management believes that analyzing these expenses
exclusive of these non-cash items provides a useful measure of the cash
invested in the operations of its business.The non-cash items excluded in the
determination of Adjusted Operating Expenses are share-based compensation,
amortization of acquired intangible assets, and amortization of property and
equipment. For a description of the reasons these items are adjusted, please
refer to the Fiscal 2013 MD&A.

4) Adjusted EBITDA

Management believes that analyzing operating results exclusive of significant
non-cash items provides a useful measure of the Company's performance. The
term Adjusted EBITDA refers to earnings before deducting interest and
investment gains (losses), income taxes, amortization of acquired intangible
asset and property and equipment, foreign exchange gain or loss, and
share-based compensation. The non-cash items excluded in the determination of
Adjusted EBITDA include share-based compensation, amortization of acquired
intangibles, and amortization of property and equipment.

5) Theft Management products

Management defines the Company's theft management product line as Computrace
products that include an investigations and recovery services component.

6) Device Management and Data Security products

Management defines the Company's device management and data security product
line as are defined as our Absolute Manage and Absolute Secure Drive products,
as well as Computrace products that do not include an investigations and
recovery services component (for example, Absolute Track and Computrace Data
Protection).
